At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

We are closed today. Our exhibitions are always free.

PICA Salon Vernissage 2020

PICA Salon Vernissage 2020
Salon Vernissage is Perth’s signature art event.
It’s a Gala like no other – a unique celebration of contemporary art, music, food, drink and fashion. Held annually as way to thank and acknowledge PICA’s vital supporters, the Salon Vernissage always evokes a sense of wonder and surprise, while offering opportunities for guests to either begin or grow their art collections.
This year’s Vernissage will launch Refracted Reality, a specially curated exhibition by Guest Curator Anna Louise Richardson featuring the hand-picked work of ten compelling artists. All works will be for sale on the night, with all sale proceeds returning directly to the artists.
Using the window as a motif and metaphor, Anna has selected works from a variety of mediums, including painting, photography, video and sculpture, that embody the urban domestic, digital landscapes, imaginary gardens, introspective interiors and sublime environments.
Salon Vernissage 2020 will also open the window on PICA’s 2021 program, offering guests a glimpse into the exciting spectrum of contemporary arts experiences planned for next year.
This will be an event like no other, for a time like no other – an ideal opportunity to dust off your finery, mingle with like-minds, buy art from PICA’s specially curated selection, and support artists when they need it most.
